Super Hybrid Airships
A new crosswind propulsor for new super-hybrid airships gives a new level of all-weather vertical take off and landing aviation transport. A new all foreshortening inertial-less special airship propulsor transforms any hybrid airship into the super-hybrid airship.

Why Super Hybrid?
Because the new airship can do anything that hybrid airships can: It can take off and land with a load both vertically and from a runway *; It can fly in “heavier than air” mode; It can fly using aerodynamic lift on the hull and stub wing; their cargo capacity can accommodate several 40 foot or 20 foot standard containers in their cargo hold; (like hybrids) their cargo capacity can accommodate one truck with a 40 foot container or two trucks with 20 foot containers each in their cargo hold; they can be loaded/unloaded under their own power. * Looking into the future, construction of the runway type is not expected, simply because there will be no need for it. What’s more, super hybrid airships can do what hybrid airships can’t: They can take off and land vertically with a full load without using engine power and without strong air flow under the cargo bay; It can stay in the air almost indefinitely with a full load; Super hybrids can do all these things in any wind all the way up to gale force, including maneuvering precisely and hovering in a stationary position right above the ground or ground structures. Provides cargo loading in the hold by method of the exact landing on the cargo.
All super hybrid airships are reliable, all-weather, high-precision, stable flying cranes with no time limits on operation; Their unique level of controllability and wind stability permits a super hybrid airship to operate in coordination with one or more other airships for transport of inseparable heavy loads with a weight several times greater than the capacity of one airship. In addition to everything above, super hybrid airships with ballast control can also: Load and unload self-propelled wheeled and tracked vehicles up to 25 tonnes in weight under their own power in field conditions; Load and unload watercraft with a displacement of up to 25 tonnes into and out of the water, with crew; Fight forest fire hot spots patrolling from a constant airborne position; Save people and fight fires on upper floors of high buildings; Perform reconnaissance and deliver vehicles and equipment to catastrophe epicenters in the initial hours; And that’s far from the whole list…
